ADS, signed “Wm. H. Harrison,” one page, 7.5 x 3.25, August 31, 1795. Handwritten document by Harrison from his headquarters at Greenville, Ohio, in full: "Borrowed and received of Doctor Charles Brown three hundred dollars payable on demand." Affixed to a same-size sheet and in very good to fine condition, with light soiling and staining, vertical folds, and toning from prior display. Encapsulated in a PSA/DNA authentication holder.

At this time, Harrison was just 22 years old and serving as aide-de-camp to General 'Mad' Anthony Wayne in the Ohio Indian Wars. Earlier in the month, he had been one of the signatories of the Treaty of Greenville, which ended the Northwest Indian War. In the treaty a coalition of Native American tribes, including the Ottawa, Potawatomi, Chippewa, Miami, and Shawnee, ceded a large area of midwestern land to the United States in exchange for goods valued at $20,000. Harrison would come to national fame nearly two decades later when he again fought the Native Americans, most prominently in a victorious effort over Tecumseh at the Battle of Tippecanoe in 1811.
